Really nice big camera table with places to charge batteries and dry
camera.  On board computer to view digital pics, and video processing for
slides.  Dedicated fresh water bin for cameras.  Camera pro wasn't helpful
for me but may have been for more experience photographers.

This was my second time on this boat (last time was 3.5 years ago).  The
food was great, the boat is nice although I kept finding flaking white
paint on my clothes.  Rooms are tight but clean w/tv/dvd combo.  Diving
made VERY easy with Nitrox or air fills without you needing to remove BC
from tank.

The food was great.  Nice variety, quality, and lots of it (I'm a big eater
and was always satisfied).  Barty was the cook and she did a wonderful job.
 I personally liked Savio who was the cook on my last trip and I thought
Barty was much better (except Savio made a killer curry one night and we
didn't get that with Barty).

The dive staff were great to get along with but didn't point out anything
underwater (except for the night dives).  Experienced but I would have
liked some more insight into the creatures and if they could have shown us
where some more interesting species were that would have been nice.  They
did tell us about a scorpion fish that hangs out on the back of the Tibbets
wreck, but that was about it.

I wish I would have brought ear drops.  If you haven't done a live aboard
before, make sure you have correctly fitting booties so you don't be
blisters.  I had my Dramamine this time so I didn't get sick on the
crossing between Grand and Little Cayman.

I had problems with Steve the photo guy as I rented a camera that didn't
work (came up in middle of dive to get different camera, when I went back
down it still didn't work).  I'm not a photo pro but have shot underwater
before.  He setup the camera (once it was working) and all my shots were
way too dark, I think the flash was out of sync with the camera because
some shots I took without the flash looked like those with the flash.  He
blamed me saying I was expecting perfection on each picture...give me a
break.  He did make sure I had a working camera for 4 dives though.

I would do another Aggressor in a heart beat.  Easiest diving you can do.
